Jamshedpur: The death anniversary of Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, the founder of Jan Sangh, was observed by leaders of Jamshedpur Mahanagar unit of Bharatiya Janata Party at the district BJP office in Sakchi on Friday.
Party leaders and supporters paid floral tributes to Dr Mukherjee and remembered him as a great visionary and patriot. They said the life and achievements of Dr Mukherjee were a constant source of inspiration for the party and the young generation.
Also present on the occasion, district BJP president Dinesh Kumar said Dr Mukherjee was a humanitarian leader who believed in nationalist values. He said Dr Mukherjee had done a lot to make Kashmir an integral part of India.
“The contributions of Dr Mukherjee to BJP and the country cannot be obliterated, come what may. There is an urgent need for us all to follow in the footsteps of this great ideologue and work hard to make his dream come true. Dr Mukherjee wanted to bring Antyodaya in the country.
We all should strive to achieve it,” said Kumar.
